In a far-reaching development for health monitoring particularly for cardiology in the country, Xplore Lifestyle, country’s leading and futuristic MedTech solutions provider in collaboration with an Israeli company has come up with the most advanced cardiac and other vital signs monitoring technology in the form of an easy-to-wear watch. Taking wearable technologies to a new level, CardiacSense is the first medical grade continuous vitals monitoring device launched globally. The product was launched at Le Méridienin New Delhi at an event attended by Naor Gilon, Ambassador of Israel to India along with Eyal Copitt and IdoMor from CardiacSense, and Pankaj Balwani from Xplore Lifestyle.

As a result, it can detect fatal Arrhythmia like AFib, and notify doctors and family members of patients instantly.

Cases of heart-related conditions have seen an extraordinary spike in recent years not only among the elderly and the middle-aged but even among the younger populations in India. According to experts, India may face the unenviable prospect of having the greatest number of cardiac deaths in the world by 2030.

‘Patients with irregular heart rhythms (Arrhythmia) in most cases don’t realize that they may be suffering from some of the life-threatening abnormal heart rhythms. With Atrial Fibrillation being the most serious of arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat) responsible for approximately 70% of ischemic strokes, CardiacSense is able to detect Atrial Fibrillation with over 99% accuracy. With CardiacSense, patients and their doctors will get alerts for life-threatening events. Also doctors can look through saved recordings on the Mobile App and cloud for all vital signs of patients, and will be able to assess what had really happened with the patient during a cardiacevent. This 24/7 continuous monitoring capability gives very useful information in the hands of doctors who can diagnose and quickly start the right treatment for such patients,’ said Mr. Pankaj Balwani, the founder & CEO of Xplore Lifestyle.
